Only 20 percent of likely U.S. voters said they will watch all the TV coverage of the Jan. 6 Committee hearings, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey.
An additional 14 percent said they expect to watch most of it, but 22 percent said they’ll only watch some of the hearings.
Thirty-nine percent said they will not want any of the coverage.
Unsurprisingly, Democrats are more interested in the hearings than most. Sixty percent of Democrats said they’ll watch all or most of the coverage while just 22 percent of Republicans and 21 percent of unaffiliated voters said they’d watch that much.
Fifty-seven percent of Republicans and 47 percent of unaffiliated voters will not watch any of the hearings.
Fifty-seven percent of likely voters consider the investigation important, a number that hasn’t changed much from last August when 59 percent considered it important.
Twelve percent of voters said it is “very likely” they’ll change their opinion and just 14 percent believe it is “somewhat likely” the hearings could change their opinion.
Forty-four percent said it is not at all likely that their opinion will change based on the hearings while 26 percent said it is not very likely the hearings will change their minds.
While 78 percent of Democrats view the Capitol protest as a threat to democracy, just 28 percent of Republicans and 43 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.
